Question 18: Favorite Yarn

Blogathon 2006

Sprite asks: What's your favorite yarn?

Ohhhhh.... how to choose? Maybe KidSilk Haze. After all, I used it for Birch, and have now started ANOTHER Birch. (To give as a gift.) And I have more for several other projects. "Yarn crack" is certainly the right term for this yarn.

But ohhh... Trekking XXL. Also with the love. This is the yarn that decorates my living room. I can't decide. Those are probably my top two, though.

(And I've just had cause to discover that KidSilk Haze's stickiness is really useful when you accidentally pull your needle out of a bunch of stitches.)

That KSH is great, isn't it? i love the colours, and the gleam the silk gives it, and how you actually CAN frog quite successfully 9prob due to the silk too) which is very useful when I knit lace!

What kinds of knitting are your favourites - lace, cables, intarsia, stranded - socks!?

KidSilk has a mohair content, right? I've never worked with it. Worsted weight? What characteristics do you like best and least in a yarn?

I see your Trekkin link is TheKnitter. Have you tried her sock of the month club? It's fun.

See, now that's interesting. I haven't tried either of those yarns.

Glad I asked!
